Head of Performing Arts

Closing Date: Tuesday 17th April 2018, 12 Noon
Job Start: July / September 2018
Salary: Academy Leader Scale, AL4-AL8: £49,919-£54,331, Inner London
Contract type: Full Time
Contract term: Fixed Term; Summer Term 2018 to April 2019

We are seeking a well-qualified Drama or Music specialist, to lead our Performing Arts department. You will be keen to lead a dedicated department, can offer vision and creativity in leading the teaching of Performing Arts and strives to raise standards through developing outstanding teaching and learning. The present post-holder's pending move into an Interim Senior Management role with the Academy, has created this fixed term opportunity.

Applications are welcomed from both aspiring and experienced Heads of Department.

Between 2014 and 2016 Stratford School Academy was rebuilt through the Government's Priority School Building Programme. We now have two brand new buildings each for 750 pupils. In September 2015 we admitted our first 300 strong Year 7 cohort and we will grow to 1500 pupils by 2020. We have not gone for the usual Upper/Lower School split but instead operate two 'mini schools' educating pupils from Year 7 to 11. Our mini school in Upton Lane incorporates a Resource Provision for up to twenty children with Autism; our mini school in Grosvenor Road will develop a complementary specialism in teaching pupils with Speech, Language and Communication needs.

We try to look after our staff. We provide travel loans and run cycle to work, parking permit and childcare voucher schemes. All staff get priority admission to the school for their children. Teachers have lower than average teaching loads and we don't expect them to do cover -so you have time to do the job properly. Our school dinners are well worth eating and you get free coffee all day made by a qualified barista. Last but not least you get to work with very nice people and pupils.
